CEO Air Fadhilat, Suhaimi Ghazali and 5 Family Members Died in Fiery Road Accident

1. Just after a few days of a fatal accident at Bukit Tagar, another road crash involving a truck parked at the emergency lane occurred. This time, it involved more casualties where six family members were burned to death. The crash configuration and profile for both cases sharing similar similarity where the car hit the parked lorry at the lateral side.

2. So how long should we wait? Until 10 died? Until 20 died? Or until the number beat the past record of 23 died? Nauzubillah. It is early to say, but based on the photos, the accident might be caused by fatigue..initially. However, the stalled lorry should not be there. It was a hazard! Especially during the night time.

3. The road must be forgiving. Human do mistake. Human should not be blamed twice. Anyway, my condolences to the family. Innalillah.

SEREMBAN: The proprietor of a herbs outlet and his family perished in a fiery crash after their car skidded and rammed into a stalled lorry at Km252 of the North-South Expressway near Senawang. Suhaimi Ghazali, 41, his wife Nor Fadhillah Isenin, 31, and their children Nor Natashahuda, 11, Mohd Daniel, 10, Mohd Hanif Iman, six, and two-year-old Adi Putra (pic) were returning home to Teluk Mas in Malacca after spending the weekend at Bukit Merah Lake Resort in Perak when the mishap happened at 1.30am.

Their remains were charred beyond recognition following two explosions after the crash. The family was travelling in a BMW 5-series which Suhaimi bought a month ago. His uncle, Norwawi Johari, 60, said at the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital mortuary that he last met his nephew while playing golf on Friday.

“He said he was taking the family for a holiday the next day and would visit our stockists in Ipoh. He decided to drive back on Sunday night as his older children had to go to school today (yesterday),” he said.

Norwawi said, according to police, the car might have skidded before crashing into the undercarriage of the lorry which was parked along the southbound emergency lane. The lorry, laden with granite powder, had been parked there since Sunday evening.

It could not be immediately established why it was not towed away by PLUS, the concessionaire of the expressway. Also present at the mortuary were Suhaimi’s father Ghazali Johari, 66, mother Rokiah Idrus, 63, and in-laws Isenin Salleh, 70, and Aminah Abdullah, 64.

Thirty-five employees of Fadhilat Herbs Sdn Bhd came from Malacca at about noon to pay their respects. Nor Fadhillah was the company’s administration and financial manager. Norwawi, who is the company adviser, said police had to rely on the chassis number of the vehicle to trace Suhaimi’s next-of-kin.

“There was nothing left of the vehicle. The police only contacted me at 11.30am to tell me the news.”

Norwawi said things had been getting better for self-made entrepreneur Suhaimi since he set up the business over a year-and-a-half ago. He said Suhami had also visited an orphanage in Ipoh over the weekend to make a donation. State traffic police chief Asst Supt Halil Hamzah said the impact of the accident caused the car’s engine to be ripped off and thrown into a ditch about 30m away.

The victims were buried at the Bukit Pegoh Muslim cemetery. Among those present to join in the prayers included Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam.
